Last minute lift and tire help

im gettin 33x10.5 KM2s, the 3.25 suspenion lift from Rough Country, and 15x8 52 series from pro comp. Once all this stuff is installed on my car, what all effects will it have? Is there anything I need to change and/or fix? Will I need new brakes? What all am i going to need to fix my car for all this stuff to be on?

I just want to make sure i got everything right once im getting this stuff on.

Thanks so much.

Its not a car.

You might need a transfer case drop as you may get vibes.
You will need an adjustable front trackbar to compensate for the axle shift that will occur from the lift.
Depending on the backspacing on your rims you may need spacers.
You may need longer brake lines.

Signatures are for attention whores.


Oh the irony.

Thanks. This will be my main car, it will be on the streets far more than in the mud. I may occasionly take it mudding. But if this is just my street car, will i still need all the stuff you had listed before?

You will get flamed here for calling your Jeep a car, be careful



You may need to address vibrations with a combination of a motor mount lift or t-case drop after the lift. You won't know if you have vibes until after you drive it. You may want to consider an adjustable track bar to re-center your axle after the lift. However it's not entirely necessary for a street jeep. Get the correct backspacing for your wheels and you won't need spacers. 4"-3.75" BS should work well

It's not a car and it doesn't have a v6 either.Ditch the large t case drop supplied and do a MML for vibes.I had that lift on my JEEP with a BL/MML and 35's.

on the 3.25 RC suspension lift it comes with (4) RCX Performance 2.2 series shocks, Front: 2.5" progressive rate coil springs, 0.75" poly isolater spacers, sway-bar links, and transfer case drop kit.

Rear: 2.5" progressive rate coil springs, 0.75" poly isolater spacers, sway-bar links, and track bar drop bracket.

is there anything else i need to add so i can have everything right? and how much do yall think it would cost to get a new break line?

You can use the t case drop or get a 1" MML like I did.Why do you need a new brake line?Longer YJ lines will fit.

I read that if i were to get over than a 3" lift, ide need a new break line. But now i dont think i will, alot of people has said that i wont need one. But i do think the RC 3.25 suspension lift does come with a t case drop
